Finishing first in the league with no match lost, M1 confidently went to Sheffield to face Northumbria 2nds in this year’s BUCS Trophy finals. In a match dominated by the dark blues, they managed to turn a great season into a golden one. After winning 3-0 (25-13,25-19,25-10), captain Jonas Pollex commented: “I’m glad we could show a strong performance today, when it really mattered. This is the result of the hard work this great team puts into every match and every training session. I am proud to be their captain.”
The team is now going to celebrate its victory and then taking a week off to relax after a stressful season. Then however, they will have to focus on their preparation for the Premier League play offs, which will take place at the end of April. A video of the match can be found below.
This Saturday, it was finally time for Varsity 2016. After weeks of preparation, all the teams from Oxford and Cambridge were keen to go on court and find out who will take home the trophies this year. The women’s second team starting the tournament at 9:30am, and this was the only time Oxford would have to concede defeat. Despite Oxford putting up a good fight, Cambridge 2nds proved to be the stronger side and won 3:0. In the second match of the day, Oxford men’s 2nd managed to take revenge for last year’s loss and beat Cambridge 3:1. The Blues then followed in their footsteps, the women’s team beating Cambridge 3:0, and the men securing a 3:1 victory.
